Parkland, Florida, home of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was forever changed on February 14, 2018. On that day, one killer changed the lives of thousands of individuals.
Through interviews and real-life harrowing footage, director Charlie Minn and the victims of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tell their stories about the events that occurred that day and outline the experiences of those involved. Keeping the focus on the victims and their experiences, Minn recounts the true stories of those present in the building and highlights the raw emotion that follows a tragedy of this scale. Parkland: Inside Building 12 shows what it is truly like to face the ultimate test of humanity and the effects of that test on a young generation. The aftermath of this shooting, coupled with the constant string of gun-related tragedies throughout the country, prompted students, faculty, and parents to speak out against gun laws and change state legislation. This documentary demonstrates the true power of courage and the resolve it takes to stand up against something bigger than oneself. (USA, 2018, 112 Mins., NR, English | Dir. Charlie Minn)
